Bump Keys

By The ITS Crew

Bump Key 01Not long ago we purchased a set of Bump Keys from bumpkey.us, which are an excellent alternative to filing down your own key blanks. The set we purchased was the 33 key set that gives you a healthy starter set to get into bumping. The set doesn’t include two keys that they apparently released after the set was put together. Those are the Sargent S22 and Master M27 Bump Keys.

For a refresher on how to bump a lock, refer to our previous post, Lock Bumping.

We highly recommend the products from bumpkey.us, the quality is top notch! Of course, you’ll also need something to bump  your new keys with, unless you just want to use a screwdriver handle.

Bump Key 02We’ve used a few of the commercially manufactured bump hammers and recommend either the Peterson hammer with the optional weight kit from 215 gear (shown to the right), or the Brockhage Bump Hammer set available from lockpicks.com.
